Proud Mommy Moment

Normally I don't talk about my kids here since I am usually running on about being a mental case however I do have something to say....

My oldest son - Eeyore...One of those that everything comes so easy to...

High self esteem and just an all around good guy...

We received a letter in the mail that I opened last night when I finally got home...

It was from the Who's Who Registry of Academic Excellence - High School Version and he was nominated...

We will know in 2 weeks if he makes it in the book....

I didn't know this was a big deal to be nominated much less make it in the book...

Remember I hated school so I never received any awards like this...

I texted my sister and she explained it to me how about 90% of the kids who are nominated are seniors in High School and how proud I should be, good for him, our brother was in the same book eons ago during his senior year etc....

So I grasped the meaning that it was a good thing and I was proud as hell that he was even nominated....

I showed him and hubby the letter this morning...

Of course he doesn't give a rats ass about it since to him it isn't cool....

I explained to him how huge this was and I still don't think he cares....

We let him know that even if he doesn't make the book, we are so very proud of him...

After he left for school, we both said that there is a very slim chance of him getting in the book since it is based from all over the US however we were doing something right since he was nominated...

Why is there a slim chance he will get in???

He is in 7th grade...Now you see why we are so very proud of him ♥

I just wanted to share with my BFs'!! Hope you are all having a wonderful Good Friday and we will talk again shortly :o)

  1. WOOHOO That's AWESOME! and being in the 7th grade to boot! It doesn't matter if he "gets it" now. Over time, as he gets older he'll look back and realize wow. Right now he is too busy trying to be "cool"-- isnt that the age? Congratulations!!! :) :) :)

  5. That's really cool! I was shocked when you said 7th grade! My hubs was in the Who's Who business book a few years ago! He's smart like that.

  6. Congrats to him he will make the book and keep the info
    he can use it on college applications

    it is big about buying the book which is cool but not necessary

    also you can get it in your local paper. keep the letter and all
